“More than just a vacation rental; this beautiful property is a destination!!”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

During our two week stay in Ecuador in four different cities, Vicky's property was by far the most beautiful and relaxing. It was the perfect place after running around seeing sites for our family of four to chill out and relax. We enjoyed taking a swim in the pool, napping in the hammock, playing with her friendly dogs or just walking around her property which is a Garden of Eden. The view, at night, of the city lights in the valley below are spectacular! The house boasts a fully stocked kitchen and a laundry room so we were able to go to the market make our own meals or go out, and also take care of laundry needs right there. Vicky is a very attentive host and her hospitality is top notch. We would highly recommend staying at this property and when we are back in beautiful Ecuador; the cozy cottage in Conacoto will definitely be one of our stops. The only downside to Vicky's property is that you don't want to leave.

“Great family vacation”
Reviewed 10 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We just came back to US from spending 5 nights in Vicky s house. We had a great time, our 11 yo son enjoyed the pool every day. There is also ping pong table near the pool. Views are incredible!

“Beautiful and comfortable home with everything you would need...”
Reviewed 26 March 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this place. The gardens are beautiful, the house is well decorated, the beds are comfortable, the internet is reliable and the kitchen is well stocked with cook wear. They even have an outdoor pool although it was pretty cold outside when we went so we didn't use it much. Also, the owner is right next door and very friendly and helpful.

The only drawback for some might be that it's out of the way of touristy things but if you have your own vehicle this is a nice quiet, off the beaten path place to stay. It's about a hours drive to La Mitad Del Mundo which is on the extreme north of the city.

“Beautiful and comfortable house surrounded by amazing gardens.”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Villa Jardin is the materialisation of your dream vacation. Vicky is friendly, helpful, attentive, and respectful of your privacy. The house is updated and beautifully decorated, the patio is world class with protection from rain and sun provided by an expertly designed pergola. The gardens surrounding the house are a destination by themselves, with plants selected carefully from all parts of Ecuador to create a tropical paradise. Expansive views of El Valle de los Chillos abound from the patio and gardens. We stayed here for a month with our three children and had a stellar time in Ecuador--but enjoyed our home away from home in Conocoto as much as the world-class destinations around Ecuador. The pool is crystal clear and we used it nearly every day. Oh yeah--did I mention how excellent a hostess Vicky is? She is fantastic.

The area around Conocoto is amazing--and little known by foreigners. The Sunday market in Sangolqui is the quintessential highland market. The Cascada del Rio Pita is amazing and little-known even by locals. Climb El Pasochoa for potential condor sightings (I saw a pair.)
Order Pollo Stav. They deliver.

Go for it. Spend some time in Conocoto at Villa Jardin--you won't regret it.

“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I cannot say enough about these accommodations. They surpassed the reviews and photos available. From the moment we were picked up at the airport to the moment we were dropped off was amazing. Vicky and her family made us feel like family. They provided breakfast materials for our first morning, then drove us to the grocery store the next day so we could grocery shop. This vacation felt like we were visiting friends, not renting a home. There were six in our group, all family, that ranged from age 21 to 71. The family even let us enjoy a day at their country club with them so we could utilize the spa, pool, and the guys could play golf.

The only thing to keep in mind with this location is that you cannot walk from the house to the local town, you do need transportation. As well, there are 3 dogs on the property, they were the friendliest I have ever seen but they are there.
